The message is becoming confused on these forums. If you have a history of being a sugar and carb fiend I would suggest you get them out of your system and reeducate your metabolism so that it can burn fats. Have as much of your fat as coconut oil, ghee and beef fat as you can get. Cut out carbs as much as humanly possible and eat plenty of quality protein. Do plenty of moderate exercise and remember to replace the salts that your body will dump by putting plenty of sea salt on everything. Once you have broken the carb reliance of your cells they will become more adaptable and be able to switch between sugar and fats more readily. When you are confident that you don't crave sugar or carbs have a small amout and then see how you go reintroducing them either low level or periodically have a good plateful.
Somebody else will probably tell you something completely different but you are trying to follow the PB so maybe just read the book again and don't come on here for advice
